From The Other Side is a weekly links post, hopefully, giving you an inside look at LSU's upcoming opponent each Sunday based on reports from that team's beat writers.

What a difference a week makes for the LSU football program.

LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron, with interim offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger calling plays, leads LSU against Missouri, which handed Delaware State a 79-0 shellacking last Saturday. Leading 58-0 at halftime, the game was shortened to two 10-minutes quarters in the second half.

Despite the opponents in its two wins, it’s clear Missouri (2-2, 0-1 SEC) has some firepower on offense, led by quarterback Drew Lock. Lock is either first or second in the SEC in five major quarterback categories.

LSU hasn't faced Missouri since the latter of the two joined the SEC.
